How we work
Through our grant-making, we support others to make the world a safer, fairer, and more sustainable place to live. We seek partners who are passionate in their pursuit of social justice and the protection of the environment. We strive to be courageous in this pursuit by tackling difficult problems and addressing the root causes of injustice. We aim to lift up the voices of the most vulnerable and support them to understand and pursue their rights.
... and why
As a grant maker we know that we are but a small part of the changes we seek. Our role is to support and enable others to make the world a safer, fairer and more sustainable place to live. We strengthen partners with first-hand knowledge and experience of the fields in which we work.
